Previously I wrote about how Father Christmas bought me a SNES Mini Classic for Christmas. This was great re-living all the old classic 16-bit gamin at its greatest.
Included in the pack you get, two controllers, the HDMI cable but you don't get a power adaptor, which I thought was strange. Luckily it runs just off a micro USB cable, which nearly everyone has laying around for some charding device or another, but in case you are thinking of purchasing one for someone you may want to check they have one, or buy one as well just in case.
You get 20 games with this, some are amazing some I don't recall at all, the list of games are
- Super Mario World
- Super Mario Kart
- The legend of Zelda - A link to the past
- Super Metroid
- Street Fighter II Turbo
- Super Punch Out
- Castlevania III
- Donkye Kong Country
- Mega Man X
- Kirby Super Star - 8 games in 1
- Final Fantasy III
- Kirby 's Dream Course
- Super Mario Land 2 - Yoshi's Island
- Super Mario RPG - Legend of the seven start
- Contra III - The alien wars
- Secret of Mana
- Super Ghosts 'n' Ghouls
So far I have had a blast playing some of these again, the best reaction is from my kids saying what kinds of graphics is that for Super Mario Kart, so far had hours of fun with this, I would highly recommend getting one of these for the geek in your life, they will appreciate it.
One small compliant is there are no manuals for the games, or details on the games so if you can't remember a bit of trial and error is needed, or you can to the Nintendo Website which has the full manuals for the games.
As this is so small and portable, I can see this coming with me when I have to go away with work as you can just plug the HDMI cable into your hotel TV.
I am always interested in your thoughts so if you have any comments or feedback then please feel free to add any comments, or you can mail me here.
